In Germany the “Epidemic Situation of National Significance” ends on November 25, 2021.  As a result, the German legislature has amended several COVID-19 related laws, such as the German Infection Protection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz – IfSG), in order to continue certain protective measures. The amended regulations (BT-Drs. 20/15 and BT-Drs. 20/78) aim to provide for a flexible approach to providing a safe and hygienic workplace depending on different regional or sector-specific infection metrics as well as the vaccination status of the workforce. Employers will have to comply with the regulations at least until March 19, 2022.
